Why Need-Hope.Com Ministry?

Many years ago, the Lord Jesus gave my heart the desire to minister to incarcerated women. I went into the Dawson State Jail and the Lew Sterrett Jail, both in Dallas. I also felt led to minister to people in downtown Dallas. This included some homeless shelters.

Many of the people I met were scared. They felt hopeless, unloved, and looked down upon. They worried about what the future held for them. All I did was deliver God’s message of HOPE—a guaranteed HOPE found in a personal, loving relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ.

Somewhere along this journey, I felt impressed by the Lord to set up a Facebook page – “Need Hope?” I opened it up, but had no interest of participating in Facebook on a personal level.

In 2020, the Covid-19 pandemic hit. Suddenly, there was an explosion of uncertainty. Many in the world were scared.

When all in-person ministry was halted, I found myself with time to go back to the vision of this ministry.


Jesus proclaimed:

“The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me,
Because He has anointed Me
To preach the gospel to the poor;
He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted,
To proclaim liberty to the captives
And recovery of sight to the blind,
To set at liberty those who are oppressed;
To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord.” Luke 4:18-19

So by God’s grace, Need-Hope.Com Ministry is another witness in spreading the good news of the Lord Jesus Christ to the broken, hurting, and hopeless. It also provides hope for change by being doers of God’s word…..all for His glory.

As for me, I was blind and deceived. But then God opened my eyes to see my self-focused-ignoring-God attitude. Because of this, I was separated from God. My destiny was hell. At the same time, I understood the riches of God’s goodness and love. A godly sorrow had come upon me, leading to repentance and trust in Jesus. 

Jesus died on the cross to take the punishment for my sinful nature (which we are all born with). And Jesus rose from the dead, giving me a new life with Him as Lord and Savior, now and forever in heaven. I am eternally grateful. And I just can’t keep this good news to myself!

God has blessed me to be married to Michael, my loving husband, since 1989.  I live in Dallas, Texas.

With love in Christ,

Chris Gray
